Water Supply Remains Very Good; Reservoirs are Still 100% Full


Water supply in the Henry’s Fork watershed remains above average, thanks to last winter’s good snowpack, above-average precipitation in April, and timely rains in June. Natural streamflow has been more than enough to meet irrigation demand, so no water has been delivered out of Island Park Reservoir yet this summer. Outflow from the reservoir has equaled inflow, averaging 726 cfs since June 15.

This is the same flow that would be in the river if no dams were present.  HFF’s science is unequivocal: keeping as much water as possible in Island Park Reservoir all summer leads to better water clarity, lower sediment export, cooler summer water temperatures below the dam, and higher winter flow, the latter of which leads to higher trout survival. The current projection is that the reservoir will end up at least 70% full at the end of the summer, leading to flows next winter that will be the highest since 2011/2012.

Thank You for Making Henry's Fork Days XXXIII a Wonderful Night!


The Henry’s Fork Foundation’s Henry's Fork Days XXXIII was a great success! Thank you to our dedicated, supporting members!  We had a wonderful turnout and a fantastic silent and live auction! It was a fun filled night where memories were made visiting with friends to support a great cause.

Special thanks to our HF Days committee for their hard work and participation to ensure this event happens! We appreciate everyone who attended and all those who donate and show their support to the Henry’s Fork Foundation.


What You Might Have Missed: Special Highlight

Knowing that not all anglers read HFF blogs or newsletters, and many anglers have questions about fishing conditions below Island Park Dam, HFF will be posting "weekly" river conditions updates (essentially letter-sized posters) throughout the summer. These updates will be posted at the Logjam, Mailbox, and Osborne Bridge for anglers accessing the Ranch. This week's update can be found below.

Our Summer Interns Have Arrived

HFF is proud to welcome the 2017 summer interns! Maggie Dunn (Colgate University), Elliot Martin (St. Lawrence University), Sam Cochran (Washington & Lee University), Zac Espinosa (Stanford University), and Gary Anderson (BYU-Idaho) will spend the summer and fall assisting HFF with key projects, including water quality monitoring, economic value surveys, fish passage monitoring, fence repair and maintenance, a river access site catalog, real-time data webpage, and an HFF app.

Be sure to say 'Hello' if you see our interns out in the field this summer and you can follow their adventures by reading the intern blog
